I was catching up with an old friend of mine (hey Minaaa) and she was telling me abt her older sister Oumy who became an ambassador at large for the prestigious houses of Champagne Gosset & Cognac Frapin, not to say there aren't African people working in that industry but I just never heard of one so your girl "moi" was on the hunting.....
The strikingly beautiful Oumi studied biology and biochemestry at the Paris Uni and has an International Business degree as well. She fell in the wine industry by accident shoping at a French gourmet shop by striking a conversation the owner who ended up hiring her.
With her mean walk and her fashion style and of course hard work ,she worked her way up becoming a sommelier then the personal responsible of the selling of Champagne. One thing lead to another and this cheese and champagner lover is today a respected key player within the wine industry. She is based in NY and leads seminars and tastings with wine stores,restaurants ect... go girl!
